JEFF PIETRO guest mix + midwest selections from OLIN, .noncompliant., ZACH LUBIN, NIGHT OWL DINER, CLOSE UP OF THE SERENE + more, hosted by CHRIS WIDMAN. WIDMAN begins a techno-heavy program with a 50/50 split of 2016 carry-overs (aka releases from december that didn’t quite get their due) + midwest-related artists/labels: from chicago, OLIN on his own BOUNDARY MOVEMENT label, ZACH LUBIN on his OBVIO RECORDS, dnb titan STUNNA in house mode on the new AERONAUTIC RECORDS imprint, + CHRISSY‘s THE NIGHT OWL DINER posthumous NACKT release; indianapolis’s DJ SHIVA (check out her 2014 ABSCI guest mix here) as .noncompliant. on the long-running DETROIT UNDERGROUND label; + milwaukee’s LIQUID CITY MOTORS on CLOSE UP OF THE SERENE.
special guest JEFF PIETRO contributes a mostly techno mix–at times hypnotic + others driving, while touching on elements of breakbeat hardcore, industrial + electro–for the second hour. PIETRO is a veteran chicago selector + previous ABSCI guest. his latest release is a remix of frequent collaborator ISRAEL VINES’ new project on EYE TEETH records, a sublabel of detroit’s seminal INTERDIMENSIONAL TRANSMISSIONS imprint. VINES + PIETRO’s series of excellent releases on BORROWED LANGUAGE have also been featured on ABSCI over the years. [aired 19 january 2017 on WLUW 88.7fm chicago]
